I own a 7mm and love it. Shot a 270 a couple times (enough to know it is a great gun too) but here is my exp w/ 7mm:

I shoot federal premium ballistics.. and a lot of people complain that it blows the animal to pieces.. however, I shot a bob cat with my 7mm one time and the exit wound was about the size of a .50 piece.. (sounds crazy right? but its true). The cat was huge so I got it mounted.. the taxi had no problem

Also shot a big ol' nanny doe @ 200yds later that day.. the kick jarred me so much I didn't see her run off after the shot (one thing you may want to consider).. I was afraid I missed her..

Then I saw the blood trail and knew I had to start walking.. my buddy then stated "No need to trail her, she is right there!" The doe took about 10 steps into the brush and fell dead.

Before the hunt, all my buddies were making fun of me because I only brought 3 bullets to a full day of hunting.. once I went 2 for 2.. they quit talking [censored]

I have owned 7mag and 270 win. Both were a model 700. Both cals are good. I enjoy the 270 a lot better. Ammo cost less, less recoil, and it kills the deer. Also as you get older you will appreciate the lower recoil.

The 7mm Mag is one of the least efficient cartridges out there. You need to have a longer barrel for all of the powder to burn. That in turn makes you have a heavier rifle. The recoil is also greater than the 270. You really don't have a significant advantage going with a 7mm mag over a 270. A .284 diameter bullet vs a .277 bullet. That's only .007 difference. 7mm Mag factory ammo are also more expensive than 270 ammo too. But in the end, get what you want.


Yea but the 7mm has much more powder behind that round than a 270. Dont forget that part thats like comparing a .177 daisy to a .22

Comparing a BB gun to a 22lr is an apples to oranges comparison and really has no bearing on the 7mm Rem Mag vs the 270 discussion.

You can easily get 3100 fps with a 140 gr bullet out of a 270. Out of a 7mm Rem Mag you can get 3200 fps with the same weight bullet, but burn more powder. 100 fps is not much at all in the hunting world and is basically negligible.
